Adega Fordsburg, under new management is setting a bar higher in taste and service. It's about Portuguese cuisine but with a wide choice that will satisfy most pallets. Enjoyed the food and will not disappoint. It's important to book for good seating. 4/5

The first time, (or maybe it was just the dish) was good, the next time not so much. Some people love this place, i think its too varied to be good in a type of dish, the whole Jack of all trades approach doesn't work for me.

I was on business trip and some one told me about this place. I reached this place in evening and because of ramazan it was full in evening. I waited for almost for 45 minutes outside. I tried some snacks made of chicken which was really nice. The atmosphere was really nice. Even the Fordsburg area is very good.

A family friend recently invited a group of 25 to eat at here. I can honestly say the food was just great. We ordered these large mixed platters to the table. There was something for everyone from Portuguese grilled chicken, prawns in their shells to beef rib where the ribs were just so tender meat was literally coming away with... More

We were a large party (15) so had pre-booked. When we arrived our tabel had already been reserved and set, which was a plus. We got there early, but quite soon enough, the place began to fill. We would strongly advise others to pre-book to avoid waiting. Despite only having one waiter assigned to such a large party (management, please... More

The chicken is my favorite. The prawns are also about the best in town. This branch is the best of the Halaal branches in the country without a doubt. Love the sauces.
